Today’s doodle is brought to you by my mom’s birthday! Happy birthday, Mom!
Today’s drawing is in honor of Tom Kurzkanski’s birthday. Why an octopus with a party hat and a cupcake? Who cares! It’s an octopus wearing a party hat and holding a cupcake!
All right, let’s try this again. I’m all moved and settled in, so there’s really no excuse not to keep drawing, eh? Keep me honest, people. Today’s doodle is thematically appropriate.
Today’s drawing is inspired by some PowerPoint graphics I have been working on for a freelance client, and is dedicated to my Seattle friends.
Between scuba lessons, scuba homework, late hours at the day job, and preparation for New York Comic Con, last week was … busy. On top of all of this, I was commissioned by a friend to build some brand identity assets for her new company, Field by Field. She was a terrific client and actually managed to make the job feel like a respite during a hectic week. Here is the final logo we agreed upon (horizontal and vertical versions).
Clicking the image will take you to the mini site I designed. This was a fun project, and I hope to work more with Field by Field in the future!
This week has been bananas, which is why today’s drawing a little late. My week has been bananas because Heather and I are taking scuba lessons. I was thinking about how strange and alien we must look to reef creatures—wrapped in awkward gear, completely out of our element—and wondering what that would be like if the roles were reversed. So, I doodled down the SCOLBA (self-contained on-land breathing apparatus) fish. His name is Ryan.
Inspired by this splash page from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Four about a week-and-a-half, I had a popular thing going on Facebook wherein, inspired by the book 642 Things to Draw, I drew a quick sketch every day and posted it to my wall. (Most of the sketches are now posted in my Sketch Book page.) It was a very popular project, but I had to abandon when more important life things took precedent (or, I just got lazy … whichever you like). Anyway, now that the sight of my blog no longer makes me want to vomit a little, I thought I would revive the project.
